7. Men already have rights
For centuries, men had political rights, entitlements, and freedoms based on being men. Under medieval Christian laws, legal and religious tradition dictated that rights to make decisions and take actions that influence both partners have lain with the male. In many countries, men STILL have rights over women. In China, a man can legally ue his wife for having an abortion (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/1883709.stm ). If men really cared about equality, they would speak up against this injustice.

No, they don't care about men's rights or anybody's rights. They don't even care about human rights.

They want to take us back to the middle ages.
